Nostalgia Gassers Racing Association


The Nostalgia Gassers Racing Association was formed in 2011 by a group of gearheads with a love for the old mid 60’s style gassers.

Many of the groups gassers were actually raced in the 60’s & then when the class died in the early 70’s the cars were either stored, used for a show cars, some were converted to street rods.

Now they have been brought back to their racing glory. Others built 60’s style gassers so they could race with the group.

The Nostalgia Gassers Racing Association’s main focus is having FUN while drag racing their old gassers.

The Nostalgia Gassers Racing Association is a family oriented group, and is also approachable in the pits, they love to talk old style drag racing with any and all. So stop on by pull up a seat and let’s chat for a spell.

 


Mike and I were first to arrive Friday afternoon at Ozark Raceway outside Rogersville, MO. A small facility that is working hard to get sponsors, including a local church, and make improvements. Tom and Mike Cray and Bob Mitchell pulled in soon after as well as Ralph, who was helping Jim w/ his dragster for the weekend. Al, the track manager, was there to meet us and let us know how excited he was to have us at their first annual nostalgia drag event.

Friday night, gave us one time run, before a shower and humidity proved to much to get the track dry again. But finally, Saturday was a beautiful day for racing! Mark Cambell, Rod and Tracy Urish and Jack Kaylor, who drove to Ozark after Havanna canceled, gave us a 6 car field.

A brave, local news reporter, w/ camera in hand, enjoyed getting a first hand feel of drag racing when Mike Cray took him down the track in Tom’s beautiful orange Willys coupe.

In all, we made 5 passes and some decided to go for a 6th run before loading up. As always, we had a wonderful meal. Everyone at the track was awesome. Thanks so much for having us.

On Friday , Bryan Huffman, Ken Kapper, Mike Hoffman , Jesse James, Ben Bacon and Steve Bacon arrived. Ben Bacon was first out to make a pass, followed by Huffman and Kapper and then James and Hoffman. We all had a good run and upon returning to the pits, it was discovered that Ben’s engine was hurt and would be out for the rest of the weekend.

On Saturday we had quite a few more come in. Bill Wamboldt, Bill Eveland, Ted Beach, Joe Beach, Dale Letterly, and Gary Blasey. With a total of 12 cars for the event. With scattered showers for most of the day, the program was running a little late. We got called up for a run about 6pm. We all made great passes and the crowed really appreciated us. The announcer gave all of us some good air time for the run. After a couple of
more showers the rest of the event was called. Before the rain and before the event started we had our luncheon with great success. After the good meal, provided by all of our people we made our pass and had a good time for the weekend.
